As Christians, (those who believe in Yashua Ha Mashiach, Jesus the Christ) we serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The one true God, the God of Israel, Jehovah Jireh!
Today I heard of a person proclaiming a “new teaching” that when they go to a place where “negative energies” exist… just picture yourself surrounded by mirrors that will protect you and reflect the negative energy away.
Several problems here:
- This is in no way a new teaching. This is called Circle of Mirrors in pagan teaching of self empowerment. New age is not new at all. This is another version of the original lie Satan told in the garden. Satan would have us serve him and believe in his lie that we should surely not die.
- So as a reflector of negative energies… doesn’t that make you toxic? Reflecting off negative energies? That doesn’t sound at all like my God of creation.
- The “negative energies”… Sounds like the people teaching this would know something about energy mechanics right? Wrong- one of the fundamental understandings of energy is that opposites attract. It is not that man can even answer why that is… but it is a fact.
This is a horrible, selfish, self-centered teaching… we are protected and given life by a mighty creator God who when we surrender to His will and become His child, He gives us life EVERLASTING. We do not need mirrors and trickery. We are not to be reflecting negative energy… we destroy sin with obedience. We slay the negative with our loving kindness… we forgive 70 times 7, we love and pray without ceasing. We magnify and are reflections of His grace and glory and there are no smoke and mirrors involved. We are LIVING sacrifices… putting others before ourselves in every situation. Unafraid of the enemy sin and all things… the only thing worthy of our fear, respect, loyalty and obedience is God.
Again, “new age” is nothing new… at times it may look inviting, just like the fruit of the forbidden tree was. Don’t fall for it. My biggest concern is that people understand the choices they make when deciding whom they serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and recognize that I am purchased and am owned by my Savior Yashua Ha Mashiach and look to only Him for my salvation. ~Amen
